Morning: Failing Flat Iron.
Um, why is my flat iron getting too hot on setting 1?
"I only use you for bangs! You can't be breaking!"
If it gets too hot, the bangs get all flat and springy, as in they stick out. It's like they're waving at people when I walk. So not good.
Lunch: Flu Shot Fun
I'm not sure what's worse: the actual shot or the the part where the nurse rubs the area with a cotton pad. Just the feeling of the cold, wet, cotton pad on my arm is enough to bring the chills.
The area where they give the shot is open to passersby, so there is no privacy (i.e. I can't make faces, white knuckle the chair, or otherwise act like a big baby).
When my mom got her shot, there was no one there. Me? Oh, well, I had a mini audience. Two little boys stopped, pointed, and laughed. Little buggers. And just when the nurse started wiping my arm with that slimy little cotton pad, an older woman quite literally STOPPED IN HER TRACKS and proceeded to smile at me. It was...odd--almost like she wanted to ask me a question or something.
Now, I'm all for smiling, but at that moment, smiles are the last thing on my mind. I managed to urge the corners of my mouth into a weak smile.
Luckily, she left, or so I thought. She walked around me and began asking the nurse all these questions about the flu shot!!! WTH!!!!
"How does this work? Do we need an appointment? Do we need to bring anything?"
The questions just kept coming and I wanted to grab the big plastic pumpkin thing across from me and throw it at her.
The nurse finally had to end the question/answer portion of today's flu shot demonstration because the woman clearly didn't care that she was about to give a shot.
What happened next is predictable: I braced, she stuck, and I bought myself a bag of candy corn.
Night: Post Flu Shot Fun
My arm hurts and I'm achy.
They say flu shots can't make you feel icky. What a crock!
Well, I don't give a flying fart what they say--flu shots make me feel cruddy.
I'm going to grab a few candy corns and watch Harry Potter.
The Cowboys play the Redskins Monday. I will likely need more candy corn...and Harry Potter.
